Connect ground wire to ground. Connect positive wire to the same positive wire as the amp is. If you lost the charging resistor then connect the wire to the cap first then connect to the power source. This will keep it from sparking and damaging the plating on the connector.

Wiring diagram for 74 type 1 VW bug

If you are planning to install a radio, I recommend you purchase a wiring harness. If you vehicle doesn't have a stock harness, visit the scosche or PAC website to purchase one. If you can find the harness, it will have the diagram you are looking for. Also, a wiring harness will make installing the radio extremely easy. Hope this helps.

How do i wire a 500k micro farad compacitor ot my exsiting amp? need a wire diagram or detailed instructions thanks

The capacitor has two terminals. One is + and one is - . Your Amplifier has three terminals on the power connector. One is connected by a Black wire connected to the body or - of the battery, the second is a Blue wire connected to the remote wire of the Head unit ( for remote ON/OFF of the Power Amp ). The third is the Red wire connected to the + terminal of battery through a big Fuse .
Connect the Capacitor + to the terminal with the Red wire and Connect the Capacitor - to the terminal with the Black wire. Make sure you use heavy cables to do the connection and try to keep the length of the interconnecting cables as short as possible ( to minimize losses ). In other words try to connect the Capacitor as close as possible to the Power Amplifier for maximum efficiencybobhifi_26.jpg.moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.png

Describe how to connect a scosche 500k micro farad

Put the capactior in parallel with your battery right before the amplifier. So Postive lead of cap to your 12 Volt line and negative lead goes to ground. It is also suggested that you charge the cap before placing it directly in parallel with the 12 volt rail. yo ucan do this by using a 1000 ohm resistor with a power rating of 1 watt. Disconnect your amplifiers so it is just your cap and battery. Replace the fuse with the 1000 ohm resistor. Once the resistor is in place hook up your cap. It will take a little bit for it to charge. RC time constant is T = Reistance X Capacitance. So 1000 ohms X .5 Farads = is about 8 minutes, or you can just measure the voltage with an volt meter and when the cap reads 12VDC you can then hook it up. BE CAREFUL NOT TO SHORT TERMINALS. THIS CAPACITOR I STORING A LOT OF CHARGE.

I trickle charged a new scosche 500k micro farad capacitor and when i hooked it to my trucks system it threw my amps into protection. so i replced both subs and got rid of the cd reciever plays but...

do the rca's work and does the speakers work on the radio. if the rca's don't work the rca's do have a fuse inside right next to the rca's on the circuit board. it is a small black rectangle soldered on both sides and has the letter f on it. if no sound comes from the speakers on the doors the output on the radio is probably damaged. the item number of the part is tda 7856

I installed a scosche 500k micro farad capacitor in my truck. i have a 800w sony explode running a volvonhag 12" sub, the doors are run by a rockford 40i amp. sounds great till capacitor hook up. amp cuts...

You need to put the capacitor after the in line fuse/ distributor block. Because you are putting it on only your subs you are running it into fail because of a negatuve ground loop which is why they play low then cut out. Also check your grounds for both amps after rewiring and make sure they are tight.
